Our regional conference will be held Saturday, April 30 in Baltimore, MD., during the one-year anniversary of Freddie Gray’s disturbing and untimely death.
Titled One Year After Freddie Gray: Navigating Social Justice in Journalism, the regional is expected to be one of the largest and most significant conferences in memory. It will focus on three things: community engagement, digital training and media coaching — building upon the skills of journalists, public relations professionals, politicians, community leaders and students.
In order for us to have a fulfilling and successful conference, NABJ Region I needs all of its chapters in Baltimore – engaged and learning.
There will be an attendance challenge. The professional and student chapters with the largest numbers of attendees at the conference will receive funds toward respective scholarship funds. $1,000 for professional chapter; $500 for student chapter.
